For Zola Fans and Students, a Must
This is a tidy little description of Zola's self-imposed exile in England as related by his primary host and primary translator of the celebrated writer's work into English, Ernest A. Vizetelly. Fans of the 1937 film "The Life of Emile Zola" starring Paul Muni will delight in this works filling in the gaps in that biopic, and that includes any and all who have an interest in the Dreyfus Affair. Vizetelly provides an interesting picture of the writer and of England and France at the dawning of their entente prior to the First World War. A fun read I recommend.
